Drank: Neat, in a glencairn.

Nose: Vanilla, coconuts, oak, marzipan, banana cream, citrus.

Mouthfeel: Watery

Palate/Taste: Oak, honey, coconut, vanilla, and lemon. Overly astringent for the proof.

Finish: Marzipan comes back, with marshmallow and hints of toasted wood.

Thoughts: There has to be some very young juice in here, very one dimensional. Even at $30 I would have a hard time recommending this.
